What kind of server do you need to have your own hosting for streaming? Let's say 50-100 users are watching movies at the same time.

Definitely a high end server with good cpu, high ram, ssd and at least 1gbps port. Whats your budget?

You will need at least 2 servers each with these specs

15tb to 30tb space
75tb to 100tb bandwidth
32gb to 48gb ram
2gbps connection

$200 to $400 each

If you tell everyone about your video hosting site on few sites 5tb to 15tb space and 16gb on one server will only be good for a few months then you will need another server. Better to get 2 servers when the set it being setup the more resources and space the better.

I have been using Wowza Streaming Cloud end-to-end live video streaming service that offers a managed infrastructure, a free player, autoscaling to any size audience, and a REST API

Choose Wowza Streaming Cloud if you...

  • Want cloud-based audio-only streaming, with pay-as-you-go pricing
  • Need to start streaming audio quickly
  • Need to stream 24x7 audio content
  • Do not want to purchase and manage server hardware and software
  • Want an out-of-the-box audio-streaming solution

There is no need to choose a host with the "fastest" ticket response time, but choose one who you feel you communicate well with.

Hello,

Basic needs for streaming servers are Bandwidth and port. Next comes the HDD. Atleast 100 to 250TB Bandwidth is must for streaming servers including the port which must be dedicated.

Thanks

You think i can find one in the 100$-200$ range?
You might want to take a look at worldstream.nl packages. They have a variety of servers and offers 10Gbps port and Unmetered servers on demand as well. The support is nice and responds within an hour.

You would need RTMP or HLS streaming for that. As well as multiple qualities support with automatic switch depends on user's bandwidth capabilities.

I only want to serve 480p, nothing less or more. I already convert my videos before uploading. What's advantage of rtmp or hls? Does your script offer this?

You will

You will need at least a VPS server( dedicated preferable) with high bandwidth allocation, storage, and max uptime.
